DragonRuby Game Toolkit - TeenTiny Edition



Hello game devs. Below is a link to a free "Game Jam" License to DragonRuby Game Toolkit: A commercial, cross-platform 2D game engine.

The goal of this TeenyTiny Game Jam? Build a game that can be completed in 20 seconds or less. You can read all the details on the official Itch.io Game Jam Page.


This zip file includes a sample app/starting point specifically for this jam (see the animated gif below).
Sorry guys and gals, the jam is over so the zip file is no longer available. Come to the DragonRuby Discord Channel for news on the next jam sponsorship.



Here is a link to documentation (they are included in the zip file too).
